World Heart Day 2019 is all about how we can be Heart Heroes by making a promise, to ourselves and those we care about, to look after our hearts.

Across the world, thousands of associations and individuals organize events on and around 29 September: from marathons, runs and sporting events to concerts, screenings, social media campaigns and illuminations.
